  1. The fitting of the nose wheel bay is definitely the issue here. The bay should fit inside the fuselage, not flush. The top of the bay needs to be thinned down for it to fit in between the intake ducting and the locating recess for the wheel bay. Once that fits, everything else will fit much more snuggly.
  2. The Saudi scheme is unusual for two reasons, firstly it’s two tone and secondly uses colours from two different colour standards. BS381C-626 overall with FS35237 disruptive areas on top. Sorry can’t help with decals part.
  3. See my edited post above Note that the two hard points on the FAST packs are in a different position from any on the 6 point CFTs.
  4. No, the CFT’ s differ between the C “FAST packs” and E “CFT’s” The main difference being that the “FAST” packs only had two hard points, while the “CFT’s” had 6. I’m not sure if there is any physical size difference but the CFT’s look bigger, but could be an illusion. The only place I’m aware of getting the earlier C type is in the 1/48 Hasegawa Strike Eagle kit sprues H and I.
  5. Totally awe inspiring, not just the level of detail in this but in the timeframe that you taken to achieve what is probably one of the best and most imaginative builds I’ve seen👍🏻
  6. When you first mentioned your intentions of this build in the Fire Scout build thread, I was intrigued and hoped you would do a WIP. Your thinking, vision and build skills are an inspiration to others. However I’m not sure on the colour of Blue you’ve gone with for the water, it might be my screen but it looks too Blue, and I think something with a Greenish tint would suit better. Looking forward to the next update 👍🏻
  7. You could go the QF-4B route, nothing more colourful than Orange👍🏻
  8. That’s the picture I’m familiar with, thanks for posting it up👍🏻
  9. Thanks for all the information so far, especially regarding the LAU-34. I've also seen a picture of the Hellenic F-104 carrying it but can't find it anywhere now.
  10. Wondering if anyone knows of a picture showing the AGM-12 mounted on the underwing pylons of a F-104. Also are said pylons included in the 1/48 Kinetic 'G' kit? MTIA
  11. Obviously too late for the first sheet, but maybe a candidate for any further releases is VP-67, they had a couple of interesting schemes.
  12. Another fine paint finish, you’ve caught the dark and dirty look of the Blk52’s very well. 👍🏻 Looking forward to seeing the two together🇬🇷
  13. Well if that's your first 1/48 kit then I cannot wait until your second and third and so on...... Absolutely fantastic, you have caught the 'Aegean Ghost' scheme on the Blk52M spot on. The Greys look exactly as they should be and the weathering is just enough. The decals have settled very well, especially on the CFT's and drop tanks. As for the pitot, I would highly recommend the turned brass ones made by Master of Poland, which you can pick up on Ebay. http://www.master-model.pl/product/am-48-008.html Looking forward to seeing the 52+ progress.
  14. That is looking sweet🤤, can’t wait to see it finished. 🇬🇷“Και σαν πρώτα ανδρειωμένη, Χαίρε, ω χαίρε, ελευθεριά! “🇬🇷 How’s the Blk 52+ coming along?
  15. Coming along, looking forward to seeing the decals go down. Where did you purchase the Zeus sheet from?
  16. A modelling masterclass, absolutely superb work👍
  17. I imagine that if he has it on back order then he’s already paid for it, and with no sign of the sheet I think he’s every bit entitled to moan. I’m sure this sheet was first promised way before 2014?
  18. Looks like you’ve nailed the colours very well, did you use them straight from the bottle? Although it looks a bit stark at the moment due to the contrast between the radome and CFT’s, but once you spray them up, it’ll all come together. 👍🏻🇬🇷👍🏻🇬🇷👍🏻🇬🇷
  19. Don't know what happened there but that image embedded, I'll try a few more. Fingers crossed. Seems to be working now, paste as plain text, edit the link as described above and hit enter. Thanks all for your help it's much appreciated
